I am popping in to share a project that I made with this intricate die.
Serenity Thin Metal Die (Penny Black)
This is the largest tree die that I have come across.
This key in using this type of die is keeping it simple, in my view.
I colored the die cut image with copic markers, Distress Inks and then I added Pico Embellisher (New Sprout) for the leaves. The thin tip from the Embellisher makes it easy to apply to the leaves.
For the sentiment, I double-stamped it in Brilliance Gold and Versafine. I had a hard time adding embellishments. At the end, I settled for some brown sequins for the ground. As you can see I did have a left over die piece (the negative one) I am sure that I have more ideas with this die... :).
After making this card, I also realized that I want to challenge myself to "Stretch a Die" like this. After all, it is an expensive die. I know many of you struggle when you try to make a purchase with a larger die like this....to buy or not to buy, that is the question.
Therefore, for the next few Fridays, I will post a card with this same die and see how many ways I can use it. If you are intrigued, I hope you come and check it out.
"Virginia's Die Hard" Series.
Dr. John suggests the name "Virginia's Do or Die" series, I declined.
